When I first started designing patterns, I sometimes struggled to figure out the correct sizing for various pieces. After some research and much trial and error, I’ve collected a set of guidelines that I now use routinely when designing a pattern. I’m happy to share them with you and will post them in the Tips & Tricks section of my blog for future reference too.
The chart below is written in inches, however, I’m sure it will be a quick conversion for my metric friends.
I hope you find these useful, I’d love your feedback! ~Maria~
